Best game ever!

LOLOL 2018-02-06 0 point

Hi, I know this game only works with mac OS Classic (7,8,9...)
I have installed the game on sheepshaver and everything but they still tell me I have to use a Playdisc to play the game with SheepShaver. And the problem is, I can't use the .toast of the playdisc on sheepshaver so I can't access to the game, the campaigns and stuff, only to the multiplayer mode... :( how can I do that ?

Bleurgh, ask for a refund, dumbass.

Thanks for the empty promise that the download from Gog will work on Mac... there's $10 I'll never see again

Could really use a "Child's Guide to running this on windows 7."

I don't think this can be played in SheepShaver. It requires Virtual Memory and SheepShaver doesn't support it. The game crashes when you select New Game and I think that's the reason why.

where is setup ?

Heroes III is by far the best Heroes game. Heroes II was also good, but the combination of beautiful graphics (for the time it was made), wonderful creatures, and awesome in-castle music that Heroes III offers just can't be beat. Nothing to date in this franchise even begins to compare.

Installed the game on my emulator, but when I open it, it says I need the play disk. Anyone know what to do?

Ironfist 2016-12-28 3 points

Installed everything on Sheepshaver with OS9, following LAERO's steps. That part worked great.
I then tried to run the game with play disk 1 loaded into the 'volumes' menu of Sheepshaver. The game opened, and then about 2 seconds later, stopped on a black screen. I could still move around the familiar-looking HOMM 'spear cursor,' but nothing loaded, so I couldn't click on anything or get to the actual game menu. Has anyone else run into this issue and know how to troubleshoot it?

Amos 2016-11-26 1 point


As explained by LAERO, I have installed the game on the virtual machine OS9 with Sheepshaver. The trouble is that the installed version enable me only to access to multiplayer. When I launch the soft, a window tells me to introduce the play disc within the lector.. How do I bypass this?

Thanks :)

I downloaded, open with Stuff to and also tried Unarchiver but when double click 'Install Heroes 3 complete' I get the message - You can’t open the application “Install Heroes 3 Complete” because it may be damaged or incomplete.

Laero 2016-10-27 10 points

I needed 3 hours to find out how, but it works on Sierra.

It is really simple.
You just need stuffit (for the .sit), then realize you need an emulator of old macs.
Discover sheepshaver and not understand at all how it works.
Read forum threads, search stuff, download stuff, try stuff, fail.
Find out about "redundant robot sheepshaver", but then fail again.
Read forum threads, search stuff, download stuff, try stuff, fail, cry a lot.
Find miraculously a Standalone Sheepshaver (thank you Emendelson, my hero)
Figure it out, then launch the emulator, not having a clue how to use the .toast file you have got.
Read forum threads, search stuff...
Use Disk Utility to create a DVD/CD master image of the toast file.
Add this .cdr in the volumes of the virtual machine settings.
Install and play the game.

Yeah, when you know what to do, it is really simple.
Good luck and have fun. =)

Downloaded, extracted using unarchiver, tried to install "Heroes III COMPLETE":
"You can’t open the application “Install Heroes 3 Complete” because it may be INCOMPLETE."

devil djinn 2016-08-30 4 points

works fine noobs.
unzip with default program.
open install disk with stuffit 2010.
install the game, it will be located in your applications section.
use stuffit to extract play disk 1 (forget about play disk 2, its corrupt)
mount play disk1. (just double click it)
run heroes from the install directory in your applications folder.

Got the same comment, as Kai, but Rito Master 123 wrote "works", so how do I run it?

Kai 2016-06-14 0 point

Finished downloading...
I use The Unarchiver (which is use for unpacking .sit file, u can download it on app store)
But when i try to install, the game said: "You can’t open the application “Install Heroes 3 Complete” because the Classic environment is no longer supported."

Any advice?

Kai 2016-06-13 0 point

Downloading now...
Hope it works ==!

Needs a classic program which isn't compatible with the new MacBooks over 15.0

I tried to download and run certain programs, but still gets only error messages that classic program is required. According to Google, it's not possible for my MacBook to run it.

Thank you so much

MEDIC-61 2015-08-08 9 points Windows version

Well, I'm one step closer - I unpacked two of the 4 files the install and the expansion - you need to use "unarchiver" - free in the app store. I'll let you know if I make anymore progress. The other two have an error message - working on that.

eino 2015-08-05 -3 points Windows version

with windows i don't have the same problems

grepzzzzzzzzz 2015-06-26 3 points Windows version

Great game! Very great!

SMASHED CRAB 2015-05-26 -3 points Windows version

Im getting the same permission error, is this a problem with needing something like sheep shaver to open or am i wasting my time ?

nightshade 2015-05-22 -2 points Windows version

i downloaded the .sit files then i downloaded stuffit expander but after that again same problems as those below. it says i dont have permission to the folders i want to expand them to. not sure how to proceed

CragHack 2015-04-14 -1 point Windows version

For PC version, try also addon Horn of the Abyss. Extra town and stuff. Installable over HoMM 3 complete. For Mac, try VCMI project to get extended versions.

m 2015-04-11 -19 points Windows version

sell ur mac and buy a normal pc

kaz 2015-04-04 -4 points Windows version

It appears to me no one got answers to their questions in this comment field, but i'll try anyway. Im also new to mac and i get som kind of error message when trying to extract the sit files. Living in japan causes the message to appear in Japanese and i don't fully understand it but it has something to do with the folder, so i presume its the same problem others have had. Would really appreciate any help!

PC version 2015-03-09 -2 points Windows version

When I download the file, all I get is an empty zipped file which I cannot extract.

I think this problem is caused because this is a mac version... but the real problem is that this mac version is the ONLY version.
I know beggars can't be choosers, and also miracles never happen, but is there someone awesome, kind and epic enough to upload a PC version so PC gamers can enjoy this game too?

hero 2015-03-08 -9 points Windows version

hey guys i'm new with mac... can i get some help? how do i open the 4 files?

TheBlueTree 2015-02-04 -3 points Windows version

Correction, I managed to get the play disc open, however, the install disc and the updates will not open with stuffit expander.

TheBlueTree 2015-02-04 -4 points Windows version

Sorry I'm new to stuffit, where can I find these files and what do I do with them :S I have the same permission problem

PACMI 2015-01-18 -7 points Windows version

I downloaded the files but I have 4 files which I can open only on TextEdid... So I downloaded OpenEmu because I read it on the other comments but the game still doesn't run... What can I do? Please help me!!

rkist 2015-01-16 1 point Windows version

GEORG, look at the Stuff It Expander temp files.
Look at the log file of the program to find them.
The extracted files are there, you just need to copy them.

Georg 2015-01-06 0 point Windows version

Hi, I get an error message trying to expand the .sit files. Tells me I don't have the access rights for the folder (independent of the folder I choose)

dom 2014-12-05 0 point Windows version

i get "defective" archive / file error. re-upload? i tried to unpack sit files and extracted installation file doesn't work...

lucie 2014-12-04 3 points Windows version

maybe because you need to use Daemon to open the game...

Big scam ? Or you did not see it's a mac game ;)

TORMENT 2014-10-31 5 points Windows version

All i get is 4 sit files inside a folder, cant really do anything with them. Pls help, im starting to belive this is all a big scam.
